Sainsbury’s Tu Halloween Costumes Review

Halloween/ Review

It’s that time of year again when the kids are getting ready for the scariest night of the year, My kids love Halloween 🙂 We always have a party with all the other kids on the street and then go trick or treating; just on the street to the neighbours who already know we will be calling. They have such a great time as do the adults as it is probably the only time each year that we all get together for a gossip and a glass of the finest wine blood. Dressing up is always a big part of Halloween and the kids get very excited by this so they were overjoyed when the lovely people at Sainsbury’s got in touch to see if they’d like to review a Halloween costume each.

Sainsbury’s Halloween Costumes Review

Halloween/ Review

Have you seen all the fabulous Halloween costumes in Sainsbury’s this year? My two have been very lucky and have been sent one each so we could showcase them here on the blog for you.

Sainsbury's spider witch Halloween costume

Boo was sent this Sapphire Witch Dress which is really gorgeous and is only £10!! It is available in sizes 3-12 years and the witches hat is included too! It has a gorgeous glittery finish and sheer cobweb arms. Doesn’t she make a pretty little witch? 😉

Sainsbury's spider witch Halloween costume

Bugs was sent this scary pirate costume which is also just £10, it comes with the top, trousers, absolutely terrifying mask and a sword too! Sainsbury’s don’t actually show the mask on the website and I wonder if it is because it is so scary! Bugs loves it but I really do find it quite horrifying!

Sainsbury's Scary Pirate Halloween Costume

Bugs would wear his costume all day if he could LOL I have put it away until Halloween now or we would have some pretty scared neighbours lol!

I think he makes a really cute, scary, zombie pirate lol – Hope he doesn’t scare you too much 😉

Boo & Bugs both love their costumes and as always they are great quality. Make sure you check out the others in the range; they have a really cute Little Vampire and Frankenstein 🙂

Also make sure you check out Sainsbury’s free Spooky Speaker app with a voice-changer to match your child’s costume! With six creepy characters to choose from, it’s easy to download all six voices – just search “Sainsbury’s Spooky Speaker” on the App store or Google Play from the 10 October.

Make Your Own Hand Print Spider!

Craft/ Halloween/ Toddlers

Not only is this a brilliant Halloween craft and decoration it makes a fantastic keepsake to remember just how small your little one’s hands were… We learnt how to do this at our local toddler group in 2008 and I just wanted to share it with you all! 🙂

Boo’s Spider – Halloween 2008

This is really super easy and fun to make!

What you will need…

Paper or card

Black fingerpaint

Googly eyes



Cotton (to hang)


Cover your child’s hands in black finger paint and get them to print one at a time, side by side so that the palms overlap. Wait until this dries and then cut round the hand prints; make sure you cut off the thumbs so that your spider only has eight legs 😉

Stick on your googly eyes and attach some string/cotton to the back!

There you have it; an adorable hand print spider decoration! Why not do one for every member of your family 🙂
